Storyline

A young boy is found outside an NYC apartment eating from the family's garbage. When SVU is called in, they find out the boy, Jacob, isn't homeless, but is actually from a nearby home and lives with his mother and older brother, Adam. Troubled by the fact that a child eating garbage has a home in a decent neighborhood, Elliot and Olivia investigate further only to find the mother's ideals on raising her children radical and abusive. Unable to legally remove the children, SVU is forced to send Jacob back home, but Elliot is uneasy the whole time. Later that night Elliot gets a call and suspects it's Jacob calling for help. He goes to check on the little boy only to find him dead. Now SVU has to figure out what led to the tragedy.

What stays at home.....?
28 June 2006 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

A young boy is found by neighbours eating food from the trash can - turns out he's the younger child of an obsessive, over-protective mother who home-schools her sons and instills them with fear of the outside world after her husband's tragic death in an accidental shooting...

But she is hiding more secrets than merely the world from her sons, she's hiding her sons from the world..... but who is to blame? Borderline personality disorder is only glanced upon, not delved into in this episode. Yet there lies a question I am curious about - legally

  • can personality disorders not be claimed as grounds for insanity or


diminished mental capacity?
